I didn't see it in any recent threads. I found it to be a pretty interesting article:

Thanks, dyneq; I was hoping for addt'l detail on when he attacked me for various Forum Faux Pas, but, that's probably coming in a second installment. Or, that was a "fake Dan Healy" that posted here.

Crap.

;)

I attended 03-16-1994, the first show with Sam Cutler at the board...Healy was sacked for a number of reasons, I believe he had a jealously/ keen annoyance with Bob Weir throughout his career,like he believed Weir just,licked into this whole thing...regardless, he produced some wonderful live Grateful Dead music and created the “ultra mix”, so thank you for everything

Many thanks for the link.
Whenever I'm reminded that he was with the band from the mid-sixties it's always surprising. It never seemed from some distance that he ever accumulated the same standing (as mentioned in one of the posts on the linked thread) within the organization as guys like Big Steve and RamRod. This is the first I've ever read of his initial entry into the bands sphere, while those stories as they pertain to others are legend.
His position was obviously a technical one, not the physical type role of lugging gear, setting it up, tearing it down. So maybe the essential differences given his role (and perhaps personality) are the difference. The physical nature of things leading to more male-bonding type stuff with the others.

Loved his comment about going from 'monkeys on typewriters' to 'educated people making music.' It seems to pretty perfectly showcase the fact that musicians are not techies, and while their business is making music, what does it all amount to if their product is not well represented or transferred to the audience?
